Hi Greg,

The last communication i had with Max was on the 9th Nov 2007. He had some 
confusion how it all would work together and had asked me questions on the 
same, gave him all the answers what he wanted. I was waiting/expecting 
datasheets/specifications from him since he wanted to roll out his hardware 
ASAP. he sent me datasheets for the PCI bridge and the analog parts, but that 
which there already exists a driver. This was what Max said last: 

"Thanks for your reply.  Got the idea.  I will have a look.
I am busy in fixing the hardwares around tomorrow so may talk to you later."

Haven't heard anything from him after that.
